Vettel delighted by practically perfect performance

Mark Webber had to work just a bit little harder for his second place grid position and wasn't quite able to match his team mate for pace, but overall he was happy to be part of the first Red Bull front row lock-out of 2012.

"That was a pretty solid session," he said. "We knew it was going to crank up in Q3, but I'll tell you, this place on low fuel with new tyres is something else.

"I was pretty happy with my first attempt, apart from the hairpin, but Sebastian had that couple of tenths and I thought 'fair play', it was a competitive lap from him," he admitted. "Overall both of us were very competitive in qualifying and that puts in good stead for tomorrow. All the hard work from the factory is paying off."

Not that the Aussie was counting his chickens just yet: "The main day though is tomorrow," he said, pointing out: "That's where the points are."
